I’m thankful that I got to spend another year doing what I love, and more.

2014 was a year of new beginnings. I’m thankful that I got an opportunity to share my heart with others in the industry through the 2 workshops the Robertsons & I hosted in Melbourne & Penang. Never in my wildest dreams did I think people would invest their time & money to hear what I had to say, nor did I think that I would get so much out of teaching & giving back. I’m thankful for the wonderful couples I’ve met & the intimate moments that they have so willingly shared with me. I’m thankful that my job has taken me to countries & places I might not have ever gone. Most of all, I’m thankful that now I have someone by my side, encouraging & inspiring me to seize each moment with a sense of wonder.

And finally, thank you for being here. Here are some of my favourites from 2014. Enjoy.

The other day I was in the car listening to the radio and the topic of discussion was couples that have been together since high school, and how it is a dying breed in this generation. There’s something truly wonderful about two people falling for each other at the same time, and having the opportunity to grow together & the commitment to stick with each other from such a young age.

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.”
- Sonnet XVII, Pablo Neruda

Anna & Richard are one of those couples – they met each other during high school and have been together ever since. And so on the 13th of September, surrounded by loved ones, they celebrated their journey so far, and committed themselves to the journey ahead. Here’s to young love, and to those who, in the words of Pablo Neruda, “love you because I know no other way“.

My favourite frame from Nick & Kim’s wedding over the weekend.

The more I look at this photo, my heart is full. I believe this image quintessentially represents who I am & who I strive to be as a storyteller : my love for simplicity & negative space, the honesty of the moment & the sense of wonder the image creates, with just a touch of whimsy.

Whimsical Wedding  Whimsical Wedding Honest Storytelling, with a touch of whimsy.

If you haven’t heard, I’ll be in the UK region for 6 – 8 weeks (July & August 2015), so if you are getting married in that side of the world or want to an engagement session to capture the best essence of you as a couple, do come say hello, I would love the privilege to tell your story.
